There has been growing interest over the past few years in the US and around the world to build reliable, robust, and interoperable public safety broadband networks for emergency and disaster response. In this paper, we propose a low-cost, dynamic deployment protocol to locate mobile base stations, which is capable of meeting the Quality of service (QoS) requirements necessary for operating public safety networks. Unlike other deployment techniques, our proposed protocol can find an optimal schedule to relocate mobile base stations based on fluctuating population and traffic densities in an incident area. Through extensive simulations, the results validate our claim that our proposed technique can increase network throughput and reduce end-to-end delay, jitter, and packet loss rate.
